Description:

Evolve-Darker is a variant of the beautiful Evolve theme.

All credits goes to the Evolve designers (especially satya164).

Since gnome 3.8, the notebook widget renders border below the active tab and there is no way to add top margin (almost all popular custom themes have this issue). However, the default adwaita theme doesn\\\'t have these issues. It seems that the adwaita engine have a notebook rendering helper that makes it render properly.

The next GNOME version is re-implementing notebook widget with new design. Hope, gnome 3.12 would be much better.

IMPORTANT: the theme is tested on gnome-shell 3.10 only

Hello, first of all thanks for making this awesome theme I love it :)

One thing I'd like to point out just to make it more awesome: using the global dark theme in Fedora 20 and Gnome 3.10 won't change the title bar to the black style of theme in some known applications like Opera, Firefox or Aptana Studio 3, having sometimes (like firefox case) most of UI in black and title bar in white, which ruins the style :(

I am not sure about this. I have just tested with firefox and eclipse on my Arch system (gnome 3.10) and it works fine.

that's strange, a downloaded it again just in case, but got the same result, could it be a Fedora bug?

However some other themes actually theme the title bar properly, I'll upload screenshots later

Good idea, but I wonder why I don't see dark titlebars as in the screenshot.

Also chrome/chromium tabbar, toolbar, etc., toolbar in GTK2 apps like medit... a couple of gray areas in Synaptic toolbar...

The theme is tested on gnome 3.10 only. Do you have same version? Also, not sure about ubuntu's unity desktop.

It seems a little tweaking might be necessary for Ubuntu/Unity, but I don't understand how come Unity panel looks OK and Metacity theme for window title bar doesn't :-/)
I'll see if I can sort this out, but the issues with GTK2 apps and Synaptic are beyond me...

The metacity issue has been fixed. However, as last ubuntu release is still on gnome 3.8, this theme is incompatible with ubuntu.

Also, it seems that synaptic is using some deprecated gtk widgets for toolbar (GtkHandleBox). So issue won't be fixed.

Thanks for fixing the metacity issue. Everything seems very nice now, except light grey background color in toolbars of GTK2 apps like medit and a couple of areas in Synaptic toolbar.
I don't know much about theming, but perhaps you might like to see "Mediterranean Tribute" themes (e.g. "MediterraneanTribute Blue") concerning these two issues: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/MediterraneanNight+Series?content=156782

Try adding following lines to "gtk-3.0/gtk-widgets.css"

GtkHandleBox {
color: @toolbar_fg_color;
background-color: @toolbar_bg_color;
background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom,
shade(@toolbar_bg_color, 1.00),
shade(@toolbar_bg_color, 0.90)
);
}

If it doesn't affect other apps, I would consider adding this fix.

Yes, this fixed those unfitting areas in Synaptic toolbar.
Thanks!
I hope you can fix toolbar bgcolor of GTK2 apps in due course as well ;-)
